It’s baaaaaack!  And earlier than ever this year!

The Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte (lovingly called the PSL) is back.  And PSL fans have already taken to social media to express their excitement over the last couple of weeks!

It’s Time to Get Your PSL Fix!  Yummmm!

According to Investopedia, Starbucks sells roughly 20 million cups of PSLs each year.  That’s a LOT of lattes since the drink was introduced in 2003!  The PSL even has its own Twitter account with over 16,000 followers @TheRealPSL.

So yeah…it’s a big deal.

Given its popularity, and because I know there’s decent chance a lot of y’all will be indulging in your own PSL today and in the coming weeks, I wanted to remind you to use the right card for your purchase!  Because wintertime is the perfect time for a Starbucks fix, right? 😉

Personally, I’ll be using my Chase Sapphire Preferred Card, that earns 2X Chase Ultimate Rewards points on dining, for my Starbucks purchases.  Because I love racking up Chase Ultimate Rewards points and transferring them to travel partners like United Airlines and Hyatt for Big Travel.  You can read our review of the Sapphire Preferred here.  It’s our favorite card for beginners in the miles & points hobby!

But I’ve also been eyeing the (newish) Capital One Savor Cash Rewards Credit Card.  With the Savor card, you earn 4% cash back on dining (basically ANYWHERE that serves food).  Plus, it currently comes with a $300 welcome bonus after spending $3,000 on purchases within the first 3 months of account opening.

The information for the Capital One Savor Cash Rewards card has been collected independently by Million Mile Secrets. The card details on this page have not been reviewed or provided by the card issuer.

That’s a fantastic welcome offer for a card that earns bonuses for spending in popular categories like dining, entertainment, and groceries.  And I like the simplicity of earning and redeeming cash back that it offers.  Team member Joseph wrote a very informative (and entertaining!) review of the Savor card here.

If you don’t have either of these cards or are having a hard time choosing between the 2, be sure to read our comparison of the Capital One Savor and Chase Sapphire Preferred.

Are you a PSL fan or Starbucks addict?  If so, do you make it a point to earn cash back or travel rewards for your purchases there?
